Evening Entertainment

This is what my guys did this evening while I was cooking dinner.  They got our generator back online!  YEAH !!  The electricity went out twice while I was cooking, so it's nice to have the generator back.

After helping Daddy with the Generator Nathan decided to find a bug
to put in the bug box Andy built for him.

I thought it was a pretty interesting moth.

More Field Day Fun

Here are a few more pictures from the 2nd day of field day. 

I liked this picture.  Only here would a kid drink a hot cup of tea at field day.

Field Day

Once a year Abby's school has Field Day.  It's a fun filled day of races, catching up with friends, eating good food, face painting and having lots of fun!  Field Day started yesterday and will finish up today.  Audrey had a fever last night, so I had to stay home from field day today.  Bummer, but it has been a nice day full of Audrey cuddles!

Abby ran in a few races, but she really likes field day because she can hang out with her friends all day.  

Abby is in the red shirt, second from the right 

Face Painting is always a big hit at field day.  They really took the artistry level up this year because the art teacher was helping do the face paint.

Audrey was a rabbit.  When they asked her what she wanted she just said she wanted purple, so she got a purple rabbit.

Haley did the same thing.  She requested pink so she got a pink rabbit.

Nathan got a rocket ship on one side of his face and a planet on the other side.

Field day is one of our favorite weekends each year!

We're Home

We made it !  We made it here safe and sound with all our little ones in tow.  :-) We even made it with all our bags and no custom fees!  The customs official only opened one of our bags and the only thing they had a question about was Nathan's toy light saber.  Fortunately for Nathan, once they figured out that it was a toy they put it back in the bag and let us move along our merry way.

We're in the middle of fighting jet lag right now.  The kids think 12AM-4AM is a wonderful time to wake up and play.  We've had two nights like that, so we are hoping that tonight will be their first full night to sleep through the night.

Abby started back to school today & loved her 2nd grade teacher.  When I walked her up to her class this morning, the entire class started yelling, "Abigail !  Abigail's back!" in excitement.  It was a great way for her to return to school. 

I'll write more once we get unpacked and settled back into life here.

Last Supper

What does the Hatfield family do on our last night in the USA??  Eat our favorite meals !!  Andy's eating steak, Koleta's eating shrimp, and the Kiddos are eating pizza.  YUM !!

Please pray for our family as we travel back home.  It takes us 3 plane flights (a 24 hour trip) to make it back.  We leave Thursday around noon and will arrive on Friday around noon.

Identical or Fraternal Twins

I've been asked a Million times if our little Ladies are Identical Twins.  I've never had an answer until today. In December we ordered a DNA test for the twins so we could find out.  We got the results today!  Our sweet little ladies are  . . . . .

The little Ladies had a Minnie Mouse Cake

Haley was excited about the cake

Audrey was too.  Aunt Lindsey was brave to hold her while she ate her cake.

Uncle Luke was brave too!  Haley and Uncle Luke dressed up like Minnie Mouse to eat their cake.

Grandpa Cheeseballs took care of Minnie while the twins were eating.

I thought this was a sweet picture of Haley with Aunt Lindsey

Uncle Luke was a trooper !!  He let the twins style his hair and beard with their new hairstyle set.

It was a FUN birthday!  So much fun to celebrate with our family.

I love my little family!

And the Children Were Nestled All Snug In Their Beds . . .

Pictures with Santa

Uncle Jerry grew his beard out this year & he looked an awful lot like Santa.  He was a good sport and let the kids get a "Santa Picture" with him.
